This and That

There was a charity show in Kobe, Japan featuring Daisuke Takahashi, Yuzuru Hanyu and Shizuka Arakawa.  There are several news clips.  Takahashi and Hanyu both did their competitive SPs.  It is good for Daisuke to get another program in public after such a delay due to the Worlds situation.

Akiko Suzuki won the Triglav Trophy with a 90+ in the free skate.

Michael Phelps won three events at the Michigan Grand Prix and even beat Ryan Lochte after losing the 200m butterfly.  Michael referred to this as a wakeup call.  It continues to be a work-in-progress as he attempts to get back up to form.

  1. Takahasi and Shizuka look great. Shizuka just keep getting better. Her jumps, extension, speed and overall physical condition have not dropped a bit since going pro. I think she could should show everyone of SOI a thing or two.

    Takahasi looked great in the clip. I think he is ready to defend that title.
